I'm a little behind...
Harry Potter came out this weekend.
Now before you go get your wizard panties all in a wad, let me just say right now that I just don't get it.
I haven't read any of the [apparently magical] books, and I believe I've only seen a grand total of five minutes from one of the movies.
Before your throw your stones, let me explain.
I'm not against magic. Nor am I an anti-bandwagon kind of gal. I wear my UGG (ahem... fake) boots and Nike shorts with pride. Not to mention, I've trudged my way through the Twilight series and all of its angst.
I just can't get into fantasy.
Is that sad?
My imagination is about as vast as my big toe.
So while the movie theaters flooded with anxious teenagers dressed with pointy magic sticks and oval-rimmed glasses, Grahm and I walked into Rachel McAdam's latest film: Morning Glory. I think there were fifteen people in the theater, and that's being generous.
So, I guess I should [probably] try reading this series sometime. After all, I wouldn't mind living large like JK Rowling now is. But I think it might be difficult to read about flying brooms, magic spells, and talking creatures.
Do you like Harry Potter? Does it live up to all the hype?
